HR Answers: Job hopping

first_imgA majority of younger workers see the upside of frequent employment changes and many plan to look this year.Job hopping may be losing its bad reputation, at least among the youngest generation of U.S. workers, an Accountemps survey suggests. Fifty-seven percent of employees between the ages of 18 and 34 said changing jobs every few years can actually help their career, compared to 38 percent of professionals between the ages of 35 and 54 and 22 percent of those age 55 or older.There were also differences by gender, with 47 percent of men and 37 percent of women reporting that job hopping is beneficial.Workers were asked, “Do you think job hopping (leaving your current employer for a new job every few years) can benefit your career?” Their responses: “Conventional wisdom about the perils of job hopping has begun to shift, but professionals still need to look carefully before they leap,” says Bill Driscoll, a district president with Accountemps. “Changing jobs every three to four years is one thing; more frequent moves could indicate the inability to dig into a role and put employers on guard.”Driscoll adds, “Professionals considering job moves should evaluate not only salary but also where they will have the greatest opportunity to build skills and advance their careers.” continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Chelsea dropped Kepa, the most expensive goalkeeper in the world

first_imgWilly Caballero has been selected ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga to start Chelsea’s important Premier League clash with the Wolves at Stamford Bridge.The Blues need one point to be sure of Champions League football next season, with third-placed Manchester United and fifth-placed Leicester City playing each other. Frank Lampard has opted for a change in goal, however, with regular understudy Caballero preferred to Kepa. “I think clearly you want them to be talented, to keep balls out of the net. It’s old-school but it’s the first and foremost job in what a goalkeeper should keep closest to their heart,” he said. “The idea of clean sheets, it’s not always culpable on them, of course, for a ‘keeper to have a real desire and talent to produce that. But in the modern day they are even more involved than ever. To use their feet, to be a personality, all-round ability which you see with the top level goalkeepers in the world. We were fortunate to see at Chelsea that we had ones we can certainly say were part of huge eras for the club. That has to be Kepa’s desire, to be that person for this club and be a goalkeeper in his own right to say that he’s a huge part of a successful team. It’s not just on Kepa, of course, but in his own way that is what he has to believe and work towards.”Kepa has made 33 Premier League appearances this season, having been previously dropped to the bench for a run of four league matches in February, when Caballero was preferred.The 38-year-old Argentina international failed to keep a clean sheet during that period and has not featured in the Premier League since, although he has played four of Chelsea’s five games en route to the FA Cup final.”If you’re sure about your keeper you start him every game. He cost £75M and he hasn’t been a success.”- Jamie Redknapp on Kepa’s future[via @footballdaily]pic.twitter.com/ov9y7ideYr— Absolute Chelsea (@AbsoluteChelsea) July 26, 2020 The Spain international’s performances have come in for frequent scrutiny this season and he endured a torrid outing during the 5-3 midweek defeat at champions Liverpool.“Just a choice, Kepa’s had some difficult times so I am playing Willy,” Lampard told Sky Sports.Frank Lampard on why he has dropped Kepa Arrizabalaga today.“Just a choice.” He’s clearly made his mind up long term, in my opinion. pic.twitter.com/EVtYdhFBQw— LDN (@LDNFootbalI) July 26, 2020Indeed, Arrizabalaga has never been far from the headlines after moving to London, with the 25-year-old famously disobeying former boss Maurizio Sarri during last season’s Carabao Cup final, refusing to come off the pitch despite the Italian boss trying to replace him.The shot-stopper has been linked with a move away from Chelsea throughout this season, with the Blues keen on Atletico Madrid’s ever-reliable Jan Oblak, who would command €120 million (£110m/$137.5m) fee as per his release clause.After being dropped today he likely also won’t play in the FA Cup Final, meaning Kepa may have played his last game for Chelsea.A truly awful transfer for £72m, and I give Lampard huge credit for being ruthless despite the price tag.With that said, I wish him well elsewhere. pic.twitter.com/9o6k2cCVnu— LDN (@LDNFootbalI) July 26, 2020Lampard had previously challenged Kepa to up his game.last_img read more
